Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.

Mostly used as an indoor houseplant, the flowering maple is a good alternative for those in climates that aren't suitable for maples to grow naturally. The trunk is somewhat woody, with two to three inch leaves which are quite similar to maple leaves. So far, rarely used as bonsai, but they are readily available and have 2 inch bell-shaped flowers which bloom year-round to recommend them. Shape is usually maintained through pruning, however wiring should work as long as care was taken to protect the branches. These plants do fine in ordinary potting soil.

Acalypha godseffiana 'Heterophylla', Copper Leaf, Beefsteak Plant, Fire Dragon, Jacobs Coat

Click to see full-size image Acalypha godseffiana 'Heterophylla'
Family: Euphorbiaceae
Copper Leaf, Beefsteak Plant, Fire Dragon, Jacobs Coat
Origin: Fiji
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsOrnamental foliageSeaside, salt tolerant plant

A very colorful tropical shrub grown for its attractive reddish leaves. Beautiful foliage of mixed shades of red, yellow and green. Leaves, much smaller than ordinary copper leafs, they are orange/red in the full sun and mostly variegated/green in the shade. The more sun the more colorful the leaves will get. Fast growing, a native of the East Indies and the Pacific, this is one of the most striking foliage shrubs and is widely used by tropical gardeners. The leaves also vary in form, some being flat and others undulating, while the flowers are inconspicuous. In a garden, where they are often used as informal hedges or in massed beds, all Acalypha species require full sun, well-drained soil, and careful pruning to prevent them from becoming leggy. They are easily propagated by cuttings.

This family is characterized by having sweetly scented flowers, and sticky, milky sap which is often poisonous. The Bushman's poison is a hardy drought and frost resistant evergreen shrub. It tolerates full sun but prefers shade. It also does well as a container plant.
